Walter Russell Mead

Every two months a battered envelope containing Foreign Affairs arrives in my box, and invariably I turn immediately to the reviews section to see what Walter Russell Mead thinks about what he’s been reading. In the current issue there is a primer on European Anti-Americanism (handy), and sometimes there are longer pieces, like this terrific bit on Keynes. But his crisp reviews are gems in style and substance, and you can appreciate the artistry in their construction even if you have little interest in the mechanics of global affairs – like this tight paragraph, for instance.
